Re: Good BW = A definable SPECIAL something

Very good points, sunshine ..

Here is a link, which can also go a long way to explain color vs B&W - this time with the work, predominantly B&W of "really talented* group from Europe - 4 countries there :


In addition, I'm certain that people like you, and few from this and other threads here are going to enjoy it in your own way.

Take care

The question in the final sentence should read:

I think you should be asking the question the other way round: "What is it that you like in a bw shot that wouldn't be there (with the same intensity) if color was NOT removed?"
